Following the cancellation of this year’s Festival in mid-stream, we would like to thank all our performers, audience and volunteers for their work and support preparing for this year’s concerts. After the success of the first three events, it was very disappointing for all concerned that so much skill and enthusiasm could not after all come to fruition at the Festival Hall and St Peter’s Church.

In view of the current situation, the choral workshop planned for 26 September has been cancelled. We are hoping to present a Festival in March 2021, which will probably have to be scaled down considerably from its usual format. Planning for this is under way, and we are looking forward to supporting and showcasing music-making in our area again, as soon as this becomes possible.
The Festival’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Thursday 24 September at 6.30 pm via a Zoom meeting. Members of the public are very welcome to join the meeting. Voting is limited to Friends of the Festival and singers who paid a subscription during the past year. If you would like to join the meeting, please email the Secretary, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., for the login details.
